Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 9, 2005
ToBits today announces two innovative services for consumers and businesses ready to take full advantage of a move to the digital world: CD to MP3 conversion (the CD ToBits service) and Videotape to DVD conversion (the Video ToBits service).
Consumers can use the new ToBits services to take full advantage of the wave of consumer electronics now available for streaming digital music and video throughout the home. Converted music and video is delivered in standard formats that can be used with portable video and music players of many kinds, including the very popular AppleÂ® iPodÂ. The ToBits conversion services are available on a nationwide basis through the ToBits web site (http://www.tobits.com).
"Our entire business premise is to make a mysterious, frustrating, time consuming conversion process extremely simple and quick for our customers" said Mike Brannan, president and chief executive officer of ToBits. To use the ToBits service, customers visit the ToBits web site and enter the number of CDs or Video tapes they want to convert. Packing materials are sent via Federal Express to the customer, who uses them to return their CDs and videos to the ToBits automated conversion facilities. Converted materials along with the originals are returned in a similar fashion. The entire process takes about a week.
The CD ToBits service starts at $1.00 per converted CD, with lower prices available for larger conversion batches. Since an average manual CD conversion can take 10-15 minutes on a typical PC, the ToBits service can save days of conversion time and effort.
The Video ToBits conversion service pricing starts at $24.95 per 2 hour videotape, and most popular formats are accepted (8mm, VHS, VHS-C, SVHS, MiniDV). ToBits has invested in software and hardware technology to make the digital conversion of music and video speedy, highly accurate, and fault tolerant.
In addition to returning music and video on standard DVD-R discs, ToBits can also deliver music and/or video on high quality, brand name external hard disks that can be used on a plug and play basis with Apple or Windows PCs. Delivery on hard disk makes it a snap to organize music into playlists, or edit a home movie using popular editing software.
"The excitement and wild growth around the iPod is very telling - people want to have their music and videos on their PCs, available on their networks, ready to be distributed to every room in the house" said Brannan. "The consumer electronics industry is poised to provide the infrastructure, our job at ToBits is to make the transition simpler."
